Wilmot Joins the 200K Club

We missed the exact action preflop, but we know that Joseph Kearney got the last of his 30,000 chips in holding {a-Diamonds}{10-Spades}, but was dominated by Matthew Wilmot, who held {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}. Wilmot clapped his hands, and told the dealer "no ace!" The dealer obliged, as the board ran out {8-Spades}{3-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}. Kearney headed to the rail, while Wilmot scooped the pot, pushing his stack to 200,000.
